En 2014, el 17% de los casos de infección por el virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH) diagnosticados en los EE.UU. correspondieron a personas mayores de 50 años; de hecho, en un futuro próximo este grupo de población será el más afectado. Este cambio epidemiológico puede explicarse por el aumento de la incidencia de la infección por VIH en personas mayores de 50 años, y también por su mayor prevalencia debido a los avances en los tratamientos. A medida que la infección por el VIH se ha convertido en una enfermedad crónica, han surgido nuevos desafíos; por ejemplo, la aparición de manera temprana de «síndromes geriátricos», como la fragilidad, en estos pacientes. La fragilidad se refiere a un estado fisiológico de vulnerabilidad que aumenta el riesgo de resultados adversos relacionados con la salud. Los individuos frágiles tienen un mayor riesgo de deterioro cognitivo. Sin embargo, no se sabe si la fragilidad de aparición temprana en las personas infectadas por el VIH también podría aumentar el riesgo de deterioro cognitivo en esta población. El propósito de este artículo de revisión es describir, desde un punto de vista epidemiológico, la relación entre los cambios promovidos por el VIH y el síndrome de fragilidad en la función cognitiva.

Palabras clave: Fragilidad, VIH, Sida, Deterioro cognitivo, Envejecimiento.
